The Foodbank of Santa Barbara County’s Second Annual Table of Life Gala will once again take place at the former Fleischmann Estate on Pacifica Graduate Institute’s Lambert Road Campus. In its first year, the Table of Life established itself as an essential new event. It is a delightful afternoon where attendees can experience the Foodbank’s exciting vision of both good food for all and teaching the skills of food literacy. These are brought alive in a beautiful organic garden by the children and educators who are transforming the health of Santa Barbara County through good nutrition. The Table of Life Gala is the major fundraising event for the Foodbank’s Feed the Future programs, a series of innovative award winning programs that foster nutritional health and independence in children from preschool to high school graduation.
At this year’s Gala Sara Miller McCune and Citrix will be honored and Lady Leslie Ridley-Tree will serve as Honorary Event Chair.
Guests will be treated to a gourmet picnic lunch, delicious deserts, the very finest premium wines and spirits, live entertainment, and other wonderful surprises. The afternoon will include the opportunity to bid on a select number of silent auction items.

About the Foodbank of Santa Barbara County
The Foodbank is celebrating over 30 years of eliminating hunger and food insecurity by distributing nutritious food, education, and other resources through its own programs and to a network of over 300 member non-profit partners and programs in Santa Barbara County. Last year, the Foodbank distributed 11 million pounds of food – translating into more than 8.5 million meals – of which fully half was fresh produce. This served over 102,000 unduplicated people from Carpinteria to Santa Maria, an amazing 1 in 4 people. For the fifth consecutive time, the Foodbank has recently been given a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator, America’s largest and most-utilized independent evaluator of charities. Only 4% of the charities rated have received at least 5 consecutive 4-star evaluations, indicating that Foodbank of Santa Barbara County outperforms most other charities in America.
